COVID-19 Update - July 6, 2020
Legal Aid Alberta remains committed to serving its clients through this unsettled period. Public health requirements as well as changes made by Alberta Courts have resulted in some changes to our procedures.
LAA is completing assessments by phone for all eligible criminal, family and immigration matters. If you wish to apply for legal aid, contact us at 1-866-845-3425.
To protect the health and wellbeing of staff and clients, no in-person assessments are currently being completed at the Courthouses.
Important information for clients seeking assistance with family matters can be found in the Family Law page of this website.
We continue to provide legal services, including Duty Counsel, at courthouses across the province. Some of those services may be provided by phone or CCTV as determined by the respective courthouses.
You should not attend court unless it is an urgent matter and your personal appearance is required.
Please visit the Alberta Courts website (https://albertacourts.ca) for up to date information on court proceedings, including which matters are being heard and in which courthouse locations.
